Re­union with your lost teddy

The Star Early Edition - - OPINION&ANALYSIS -

A TRAIN firm has launched a cam­paign to re­unite chil­dren with their lost ted­dies. First Great Western is us­ing posters and a web­site with mugshots of cud­dly toys which have been left on its trains.

Dozens are be­ing stored in lost prop­erty of­fices, with the bulk kept in a vault be­neath Bris­tol Tem­ple Meads sta­tion. The firm, which runs ser­vices be­tween London’s Padding­ton and the Thames Val­ley, Hamp­shire, the West and Wales, hopes to re­turn the bears in time for Christ­mas. Its web­site lets peo­ple sub­mit a search for a teddy, even if they are un­able to re­mem­ber ex­actly where it was lost.

A spokesman said: “Peo­ple need to give us a de­scrip­tion of the teddy and its dis­tin­guish­ing fea­tures and we’ll see if we can find it.” – Mail On Sun­day
